Cinnamon Raisin & Apple French Toast Bake


1 lb loaf cinnamon raisin bread, cut into 1/2 in slices
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
5 eggs
2 cups milk
4 tsp vanilla, divided
3 large apples, peeled and sliced
6 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon


In a large saute pan melt the butter with 2 tsp of vanilla, the brown sugar and cinnamon. Toss the apples to coat and cook just until slightly softened.
In a bowl whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, eggs, milk and 2 tsp vanilla.
Butter a 9 x 12 baking dish. Cover the bottom on the dish with a bit of the egg mixture.
Place a single layer of sliced bread to cover the bottom of the dish.
The next layer is all the apples. Topped with another single layer of the bread.
Pour the remaining egg mixture evenly overtop the bread. Sprinkle the top with extra cinnamon if you'd like.
In a 375 degree oven bake the french toast covered with foil for 25 minutes then uncovered for another approx. 25 minutes.


I mean c’mon how amazing does this Cinnamon Raisin & Apple French Toast Bake look?!?!? Layers of cinnamon raisin bread, egg custard and lightly sautéed cinnamon apples! Whats not to love about that? I absolutely love the creamy texture of the egg base along with the sweet al dente apples and the crunch of the perfectly golden top layer! This right here is absolutely perfect for a weekend breakfast or brunch!
